Well it wasn’t quite the hammering that we saw against Sheffield United a few weeks back, but as expected Arsenal did the job at The Emirates yesterday against a struggling Burnley side. Pre game I wrote about how I expected them to be a little more progressive than the Burnley of old, I expected them [...]

Professionalism, dominance and control – Arsenal need to show it against Burnley

Another Saturday 3pm match day: I could get used to this. It's Burnley at home at The Emirates today and this is one in which we want to send the international boys off to their respective countries with a swing in their step and another three points on the board. In year's gone by the [...]

Morning all and welcome to Friday. We're just over 24 hours until we take to the field against Burnley and we'll hear from Mikel at some stage today about the team news for this one and I'm sure he'll be asked about the fitness of a certain Thomas Partey, with whom the noises are now [...]

The importance of Odegaard and Jesus

Turns out that going Invincible isn't for everyone, eh? Well, if you're going to play that high a line against any Premier League side whilst down to ten men, then you absolutely get what you deserve. But I'll speak no more about them today I think, instead reflecting on what it means for us, because [...]

Howdy folks and welcome to Tuesday - how we all doing? I've woken up feeling a bit chipper and that is grand. I don't know why though; maybe just a good night sleep and after the grim grey day of yesterday it is sunny outside today. It won't last - this is England. And it [...]

Striker needed asap as Lacazette stinks out the place against Burnley

The frustration I am still feeling after yesterday's 0-0 draw at home to Burnley is still coursing through my veins. It makes me clench my fists harder because yesterday felt like a game we just had to - by some way or another - get a scrappy win and then we could reset. But Burnley [...]

Grind out a win today, Arsenal

It's Burnley, it's at home, they've had plenty of rest and we've had both the physical and mental hit that the game against Liverpool did to us on Thursday last week. But Arsenal cannot feel sorry for itself today, we simply cannot afford it, if we want this season to be one in which we [...]

Is there an unconscious bias that exists that hampers Arsenal?

Morning folks. Happy Saturday to you and yours. Another Arsenal-less Saturday it is, although let's be honest, we're going to have to get used to that in the immediate future, because in February we only have two matches to play! I know it's a short month, but it won't feel like it from an Arsenal [...]

Gritty Arsenal dig in against Burnley

It’s funny how watching a game in real time really colours your opinion of what has actually happened on the pitch. It’s also funny how the narrative of the result also makes you consider a performance a little differently. When the full time whistle went yesterday what was going through my mind was relief at [...]

Pepe, ESR, Odegaard and Saka – three from four at Burnley

There are some universal truths in life: death, taxes and Burnley fans booing something an opposition player does even though he was in fact probably fouled. And Burnley's fans are the booiest fans you'll ever see. If there was a sweepstake on the first minute at which the Burnley fans would boo Arsenal today, I [...]
